CHICAGO – Free materials for National Bookmobile Day 2012 are now available for download at www.ala.org/bookmobiles. These customizable resources will help libraries across the country prepare for the third annual celebration of National Bookmobile Day on Wednesday, April 11, 2012.

Materials available for download include publicity templates, logos and sticker templates, as well as flyers and bookmarks geared to help libraries enhance and publicize their National Bookmobile Day celebrations.

National Bookmobile Day celebrates America’s bookmobiles and the dedicated staff that provide vital library services in their communities.   National Bookmobile Day is an opportunity for Americans to express their support for these important mobile institutions. For more than 100 years, bookmobiles have delivered information, technology and resources for life-long learning to Americans of all walks of life. 

National Bookmobile Day, begun in 2010, is celebrated in conjunction with National Library Week (April 8-14) and honors mobile delivery outreach as an integral and vital part of library service in the United States.   National Bookmobile Day is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA), the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services (ABOS) and the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).
